Hi Bob, I'm using Samba 3.0 (the samba-devel port) and I'm not sure this is all 100% true for older versions, but these tips may be useful anyway: - Use 'swat' instead of writing the Samba config file by hand. You'll need to uncomment the relevant line at the end of /etc/inetd.conf, HUP inetd, then just point your browser at http://sambaserver:901/ Trust me, it makes life a lot easier :-) - make_smbpasswd will create entries in the smbpasswd file for all of your local users, but they won't have valid SMB passwords (there's no way of getting from an encrypted UNIX password to an encrypted SMB password). You'll need to run 'smbpasswd <user>' (as root) for all the users you want to have SMB logins, to give them valid SMB passwords. Keeping these in sync with the UNIX passwords is a whole other game (see my other message in this thread). You probably also want to delete the system accounts from smbpasswd -- either use 'smbpasswd -x <user>' or just edit the lines out by hand. - I find it easier to test things with 'smbclient' until I'm sure everything is working, before bothering with Windows clients. I've attached my smb.conf (as generated by swat) which is working fine for me, with encrypted passwords and SMB -> UNIX password sync.
